Wait until the dog is fully matured, at least 12 to 14 months old.

You should wait until your pup has his full growth at over a year. There are lots of recent studies showing that a plethora of serious health problems can be caused by early spay/neuter. That includes cancer. You can do a search on Golden Retriever studies.

Hi DJ,
I work for a wonderful Veterinarian here in Florida. We try to have our clients Neuter or Spay between the ages of 4-5 months. This makes for a wonderful dog.
The old MYTH of letting them be mature of 1 year or a first heat is STRICTLY a MYTH.
I had both my male Aussies neutered at 4 1/2 months old. My one is 5 years old now, and the other 11 months.
Good luck, and do the right thing. Neuter, Neuter, Neuter!!
